Last night I noticed that GD concerts have taken over my mp3 player. Not a pink Floyd left. Never would have thought that would happen.
I am looking for other monster shows with NRPS, 1970-05-15 Fillmore East - New York City has been played to death but has earned a spot on the 8 gigs I have. Any other shows compare to this one? Thanks to All.

funny that - I followed a similar route. I have plenty of (UK) pre-decimalization Pink Floyd ticket stubs (pounds, shillings and pence as opposed to pounds and pence) but then, to me at least, their fire seemed to go out, just as contemporaries were bringing my attention to something a lot wilder happening the other side of the pond, starting with "Live/Dead". The (duplicate) external hard-drives are now 100% Dead, though I still keep the old Floyd stuff for nostalgia's sake. Yep, you could say the external hard-drives are 'deadicated'.

Recently I've been increasing my Pink Floyd collection, particularly shows up to 1971. I saw them quite a lot in those days, but lost interest when the horribly commercial DSOTM came out. Enjoyed WYWH then lost interest again. Enjoyed Animals then lost interest completely. Now I'm finding good quality live recordings it's a reminder of how much I really enjoyed seeing them. If you haven't got it 1977-05-09 is a great recording of a 'later' show. Available at LL.

You are in for a real treat - both of those performances are essential, must-hear masterpieces that capture the essence of "primal Dead". Pigpen was at his peak, the original psychedelic intensity of Dark Star was still tangible in contrast to the later, more abstract and intellectual versions, and the amazing wave of Americana-inspired songwriting on Workingman's and Am. Beauty was on display in its pure, acoustic form. Well, why am I repeating what has been said better already? Here, read all about it:
